Each capsule of New Roots Herbal’s Green Tea delivers the robust antioxidant properties of 500 mg of a 75% epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) standardized extract. Observational studies showed green tea consumption relates directly to lower incidences for diseases of the breast, colon, rectum, pancreas, stomach, ovaries, and lungs.
The antioxidant power of green tea has also been expressed in epidemiological studies, that have discovered a relationship between green tea consumption and the incidence of coronary heart disease. Polyphenols in green tea—which include EGCG—deter the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol, which causes the development of arterial plaque; arterial plaque contributes to atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Green tea can also reduce inflammation in the lining of blood vessels that leads to hypertension.
The thermogenic properties of green tea also promote fat metabolism as a valuable ally for weight management. Improved insulin sensitivity shows promise for green tea for the management of type 2 diabetes.
